My wife and I just returned from 3 days in Vegas. An interesting thing happened to me at Monte Carlo and I know someone here can explain to me what I am missing. I was playing video poker just off the main walkway in the Monte Carlo. I didn't plan on staying long because I only had $10 left before having to find my wife to get more money so I wasn't seated but rather just had one knee up on the chair. As I was playing, an older Asian woman walked up behind me. I thought she was just watching me but she was standing rather close to me. No one else was on the row of machines I was playing. I then noticed she was holding her cupped hand out like she was holding a baby bird or something. Seemed like she was attempting to hide whatever it was from others but still show me. In her had was some kind of gold medallion. I thought it was a security or law enforcement badge at first so I squinted a bit to try to get a clearer look. She then said in a soft voice "what is it?" with this kind of creepy grin on her face. I just looked at her. She then motioned upward with her hands as if she was going to give it to me. I leaned back a bit and just said "what?" She made the motion again like she wanted me to touch it and again said "what is it?" and smiled again. I said to her "I'm not touching that. I don't know you. sorry." She paused for a second just looking at me then walked around to the side of the machines. I didn't see her again and it seemed clear she was performing a disappearing act. So what's the scam here? If I touch it then win does she tell me I owe her for bringing me good luck? Maybe if I do get interested and touch it she goes for the pick-pocket? Anyone seen this before?
